Old man

it's strange to me that to when anyone talks about coffee they're talking about disposable cups and coffee shops and lids. Doesn't anyone Brew their own coffee anymore? I am grateful for the automatic drip coffee maker. I spend about $0.05 per cup of coffee, and no packaging waste

it seems like these people have never endured a hard time before. they would do well to meditate on what they do have, rather than being worried about what they don't have. gratitude is the key to happiness.
